I was digging out a few 'scary' guitars for our display wall a few days ago, and pulled out my SE Paul Allender, which I hadn't seen in quite some time! This was my very first PRS guitar! I remember being enamored by the purple quilt and the bats! I know that the bat inlays never got much love around here, but I'm still very impressed with them. They are extremely well done, and very different / unique. Early on I swapped the tuners for some Sperzels with open gears. They are super light and I felt they added to the 'goth' look of the guitar. this was a few years before the PRS phase iii tuners came out. It's even been autographed by Mr. Smith... I'm not big on 24 fret gittars, but this is one I'll always keep.... Be scary my friends...Happy Holiday!!!!
